Program Summary

This session presents edTPA data from 33 WL candidates. These data indicate that both submission and passing rates for non-native English speakers are low. Native and heritage Spanish speakers are less likely to obtain Spanish certification than native English speakers, exacerbating the problem of racial disparity in our teaching force.
